Battles over John Smith and Jamestown

It’s slightly dated, but this New York Review of Books essay offers brief introductions to several popular books on John Smith and Jamestown. Written by Edmund S. Morgan and Marie Morgan, the title is “Our Shaky Beginnings.”

Also interesting is Jill Lepore’s “Our Town” from the April 2, 2007 New Yorker.
